About three months ago, somebody from Penguin purchased a copy of The Indie Cred Test from our website. And, well, I didn’t think anything of it. However, two weeks later, they emailed me and we started discussing having them release it worldwide….and really, who am I to say no?
The Indie Cred Test will be coming out on Penguin/Perigee in the fall! Yep!
So that’s the good news for Chunklet, and this is even better news for our readers. Seeing as how we’ll be unable to sell our edition in a few months, we’ve decided to bundle up all three of our books for a special discounted rate.
For $29.99 you get the Overrated Book (Last Gasp), The Rock Bible (Quirk/Chronicle) and The Indie Cred Test (Chunklet). Yes, that’s over 500 pages which comes down to, like, a penny a page or something (I was never good at math). In addition to the three books, we’ll also throw in some of the "We’re All In This Together" and "Vinyl Is Killing the MP3 Industry" stickers. Like, for nothing!
The Indie Cred Test was voted one of SPIN’s top 10 books of 2011, Aquarium Drunkard seemed to dig it, The Village Voice tolerated it and even the jokers at Pitchfork interviewed me about the book. Yes, contrary to many a local press writer, I can actually write. Or, er, kind of.
I know we should’ve announced this deal to you back in November when you were trying to figure out what to get that special someone, but we couldn’t announce the Penguin deal. So, well, time to buy early for Valentine’s Day, I guess. Deal with it.
